The heat transfer rates that develop when ammonia water mixtures condense within a small, un-vented, horizontal, shell and tube condenser are examined. The vapor flow within the condenser was constrained by baffles and the condensate created formed a pool that flowed along the base of the condenser. During the test program the inlet ammonia vapor concentration to the condenser varied from 0 to 10 wt % and the maximum local vapor concentration measured was 26 wt %.
